Malts of Scotland

Laphroaig 1996/2010 Malts of Scotland

December 8, 2010

This is a very unusual Laphroaig as it displays almost none of the medicinal notes that the distillery is so well known for. But it’s a very high quality malt with a lot going on in the nose and on the palate. – Rating: 89/100

Westport 2000/2010 Malts of Scotland

July 26, 2010

A very rich first fill sherry malt that gives the impression of being older than ten. Very delightful at a very reasonable price. – Rating: 84/100

Glengoyne 1998/2009 Malts of Scotland

April 19, 2010

This whisky has a “million dollar nose” suggesting a very rich sherry bomb. But the palate does not quite meet the expectations raised by the nose as it lacks complexity. – Score: 83/100

Benrinnes 1988/2009 Malts of Scotland

November 27, 2009

I quite like the taste, only the finish is a bit strange. – Score: 84/100
